Hello. I saw a huge shootingHello. I saw a huge shooting star last night (Apr 24) above Kelowna BC. It was very big. If you hold your arm straight out in front of you and turn your palm to face you, it was as big as the palm of your hand. It left a long bright white trail that looked almost like the color of lightning behind it. It appeared to come from above my roof, travel halfway down to the horizon in a long white trail and then just 'disintegrate' in front of my eyes. I have never seen anything like it before and my guess is probably never again. Can anyone tell me what this might have been? I know it's Lyrid season, but this shooting star seemed to be very very close. Could it have been space debris? If anyone can shed some light on this amazing sighting I had, please let me know. Thanks and have a wonderful day.
